I liked the sound of Jace, so that was the first name, then I scrolled through the preset last names until I hit one that looked like Errata. That sounded good to me, so I R and an A, I think, and there was me. :D

A long long time ago in a galaxy far far away.........

Oh wait, wrong story.

Back in the 80's my D&D character was a Human Lord that I had named DeMichael Crimson. I came up with the name by using my real life initials - D.M.C. - as the base for it. I decided to go with a name that sounded like it was from the Middle Ages or the Renaissance era. To me, DeMichael sounded like a mix of English and French while Crimson sounded like a Saxon type name.

After that, I've always used the name or my initials, sometimes both, in every game I've played since then.

Usually in MMO's, I'll have friends and acquaintances call me DMC, it's much easier and quicker than writing or saying DeMichael Crimson..

I wanted a Valkyrie name for my toon and Brynhildr was one I've used in other games.

Sadly, some carebear who doesn't log on uses Brynhildr so I went with Brynhilda.

How may I drug you with drugs?

A bit of a story that involves juvenile humor... It was after I saw Star Wars Episode II, at the time I was young and found the word "Anus" to be fairly humorous (to be honest, I still kind of do) and laughed at Dooku's Sith name Darth/Lord Tyranus... Which I, like a child, pronounced Tyr-Anus... lol... Well I then decided to create my own Sith lord name by combining two words I found humorous at the time: Anus and Rectum. which became RectAnus... I thought it harmless, juvenile humor until I was kicked out of several FPS game servers due to the "offensive nature" of my name... I didn't think it was offensive until someone pointed out to me something that I had never noticed before because I knew the actual origin to my name. I was told that my name (and I quote this) "implied violent sodomy"... Only then I realize that my name did in fact sound like "Wrecked Anus" something that I never intended but have since embraced it and find it amusing as well.

Well, my name came about due to the fact that I am Lord RectAnus' little *****. My name is Latin for "Slave of RectAnus"... I basically due whatever he wants me to do.

i create the name base on instinct so it can go in flow with the jin-mei race. However i never realize that it is a name belongs to one of the historical figure. Is just a coincidence.
"Imperial Noble Consort Shu Jia (?-1755) was Korean of origin. She was the mother of four of Qianlong's sons."
